, bill clinton will be here, world leaders from all over the place. i had a chance to sit down with jimmy carter, who knew nelson mandela very well. he was on the same plane coming down. he said in all the times he knew nelson mandela, he never said thank you to the u.s. government to end apartheid. here's why. >> i would say i had many talks with nelson mandela. i never heard him say, that he was grateful to the united states. he was grateful to cuba, he was grateful to others that spoke up for him while he was still in prison. he was grateful to the people that condemned the apartheid regime. but i don't think that he felt that his freedom and the change that took place in south africa was attributable to the united states. >> and of course, it wasn't just the united states that he was upset about. nelson mandela you know would have named germany and france and great britain. he did love the american people. he made many trips to america. but he remembers that particularly after jimmy carter both great britain and the united states as you and i discussed the other day tony were not all

, then think it's terrific when piers morgan as bill clinton would make a better president, your wife or your daughter? okay. so i think the bush name, the bush brand is rehabilitating, has rehabilitated and will continue to rehabilitate for some reason. first of all, because george w. doesn't get involved in politics. he will not be dragged into any political controversial issue no matter what. anytime you hear or see the guy he is helping a wounded warrior or he is helping some child with malaria in africa. i think as george herbert walker bush's health becomes more frail, people remember what a good guy he was. youngest navy pilot of his generation, a member of the greatest generation. and i think communism is going to be issues with it. there's only going to be issues with it. people are going to ask should we have three of the same them in the white house. but i tend to think that the contrast, the compare and contrast between jeb and his brother, and his father to a lesser extent, but actually benefit jeb. a lot of people don't know jeb bush, and so when you hear jeb bush, his level of
